    The Internet Press Guild (http://www.netpress.org) is open to reporters and
    editors of any country, not just to US/Canada reporters. When you write a
    letter to the editor in response to articles such as the one you quote in
    La Repubblica, be sure to mention this fact.

    The Internet Press Guild was formed by Internet-savvy working reporters in
    response to the Time magazine CyberPorn article. (They were chased off the
    newsgroup alt.internet.media-coverage when the SNR dropped like a
    rock.) It's mission: to provide a place where working press can check
    stories they are about to run regarding the Internet to avoid egg-on-face
    syndrome.

    The IPG contains a few people close to Linux development, so while a story
    like this is a little beyond the original charter, a quick check would have
    avoided the gaff.
